Christian Bale Addresses His Rant

Does Christian Bale's Rant Still Affect Your Feelings Toward Him?

Christian Bale carried his daughter Emmeline's backpack and jacket as he and Sibi picked her up at school earlier this week. When he's being a family man, it's hard to associate Christian with the infamous rant that got him in so much trouble earlier this year. He's supposedly avoiding doing press for Terminator Salvation because he doesn't want to be asked about it. When he apologized at the time most of you forgave him but it's still a topic on everyone's mind. He recently talked about it to Esquire UK saying:

"It’s not excusable what I did. I went way overboard. A lot of it was to do with the scene we were doing and stupid as it may sound to a lot of people, my character was going through a great deal in that particular scene. The person on the receiving end is a grown man. Believe me, he really wasn’t fazed by it. . . Like I said, I had it coming. It should never have been recorded. It was recorded for jollies. But I’m not trying to cover up. So there’s not embarrassment in that I wanted to keep it hidden. I’d done it in front of a whole lot of people. I take full responsibility for it. I’ve never said anything different. I’m not blaming it on anything. I took it a bit too far."

Taking all that into account tell us — does Christian Bale's rant still affect your feelings toward him?

fleurfairy [For real?? This guy went on for like 15 minutes which was WAY OVERBOARD and acted like a complete bully and humiliated a co-worker. HE IS AN IDIOT!!! I really cant believe all the people apologizing for this tool. I really cant stand him anymore. There are so many more deserving actors out there who can easily do his roles. I say I hope he just goes away.

he is a great actor, alot of potential... and i would have probably reacted the same way if someone was being unprofessional over n over again during a shoot... i don't blame him for acting the way he did in the first place!

Everyone gets mad Eveday and you especially seem to feel the need to rant constantly on every site you can find that has anything to with Bale. @Anonymous # 32. I voiced my opinion about your favorite actor's rant on 3 websites: Popsugar, UTube and Flickr. I don't know how good you are with maths, but 3 does not equal to "all" or "every site you can find". If you think *that* was bitching then I'm really sorry for you for not accepting one might not like what your idol did. That's truly pathetic, not sad. It's my opinion and YES, it felt like it happened to me because I felt empathy for the guy. You can defend Bale all you want, I don't care. I have an opinion about him, his acting and his rant and I will stick to it.

Maybe the apology he gave the public doesn't seem genuine because he doesn't owe the public an apology and he knows it? The only person he owes or owed an apology to is the guy he took to task for twice f*cking up a scene they were filming in a multi-million dollar project. Convenient that they didn't get THAT on tape and "leak" it on to the web - just the tirade.

Wish it didn't matter but it does I have not heard an apology that I felt was genuine.

I believe him. He's actually of of the few actors who I can believe took his chracter too far. His work speaks to his dedication. He made a dick move but since he and the guy involved are over it, I see no reason why anybody else should dwell on it and take it so personally.

I was never a fan of him before but who cares. It wasn't that big of a deal in the first place.

Yes, I still think he's an asshole.

it never really affected me. I felt bad for the guy that got b*tched out, but you know sh*t happens, & Bale apologized for it profusely.

Also, I find it ironic that people defend Bale by saying the old "he is a human being, he makes mistakes" yet they forget the person he treated like horse sh*t is also a human being, who made a mistake -- in my opinion, a much less grave mistake than Mr. Bale's one.

And since I never thought he was the great actor some people claim, I can easily skip his movies from now on.

Yes. It still affects me. I remember very well he humiliated a co-worker in front of everybody who was on that set and I didn't buy that half-a$$ apology. People make mistakes, we do it all the time...but he was truly and undeniably a major a**hole.

i was a really big fan of christian, as i always do back someone from little old blighty doing well in America or on a world wide scale......but for me i'm just a tad disappointed in this....he is a brilliant actor and i can't fault him for that, but in regards to being a bit of a twat he was a huge one from what i herd on that tape, i sort of wish i hadn't herd it....but there you go everyone makes mistakes and im sure and hope he has learned never to speak down to anyone again.....

I never thought less of him. He's human, he makes mistakes. We all do. So, we really have no place to judge. He's still amazing. Still love him. P.S. Very glad to see that so many people here don't hold anything against him. For a while I thought EVERY one hated him.
